    MSc in Software Solutions Architecture application closing date


    Primarily online/TU Dublin (Tallaght campus)


    Winner of best professional development award in the 2018 Tech Excellence Awards, this exciting part-time programme to give current and potential Software Architects the skills, theory and recognition they need to develop in their role. For the first time candidates can gain a full Masters of Science degree in this specialist area through a mixed learning process with an emphasis on practical application in the workplace.

    Most software architects grow or develop into their role with no formal standards, certification or training in the practice of software architecture. They are usually highly skilled, competent and high performers but many express a need for recognition of their role in the form of an accredited academic qualification with opportunities for developing and expanding their skill sets and creating the prospect for long-term progression along their career path. Equally companies are keen to retain these highly skilled employees and develop an Architecture capability pipeline as well as preparing new or prospective software engineers to be successful in an Architect’s role.

    Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet analysed these challenges and its Steering Group developed a programme concept based on the outputs of a workshop session in December 2015 with representatives from four member companies, Cisco, IBM, Ericsson and Fidelity. This led to a public tendering process out of which a consortium comprising the Irish Computer Society (ICS), Technological University Dublin (Tallaght Campus) and the International Association of Software Architects (IASA) was appointed to deliver the new MSc in Applied IT Architecture.

    Programme Aims
    The Programme aims to equip established and aspiring Architects with:

    • An informed, common, industry-aligned understanding of their role
    • A set of frameworks, approaches and tools for executing Architecture tasks
    • A knowledge base of current best Architectural practice and experience
    • Ability to Communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders
    • The capacity to understand technology initiatives from a broad Business Perspective
    • Be equipped to make strategic technical decisions
    • Obtain internationally certified and validated academic recognition

    Programme Outline
    The programme will have seven modules including a major research project as follows:

    • Module 1 – IT Architecture Design
    • Module 2 – IT Environment
    • Module 3 – Business Technology Strategy
    • Module 4 – Human Skills for the IT Architect
    • Module 5 – IT Architecture Quality Attributes
    • Module 6 – IT Architecture in Practice
    • Module 7 – Research Methods
    • Research Project / Dissertation

    The programme will be delivered part-time over two years with lectures one night per week. Every 3-4 weeks it will be necessary to hold lectures twice in that week.

    The programme will start with a three-day workshop which will involve all participants being physically present. This is seen as important to facilitate networking, experience sharing and group learning.

    There is a strong awareness of the constraints on architects’ time, particularly time spent off-site. It is expected that lectures will be delivered one evening per week in term time and every 3-4 weeks there may be a requirement to hold lectures twice in that week. There will also be a requirement to attend one on-campus day at the end of each semester.

    Lectures will be streamed live from TU Dublin (Tallaght Campus) and will be available for download and offline viewing. The award structure will place greater emphasis on continuous assessment, practical and project work rather than on formal examinations. In fact there are only 2 modules that carry an actual exam.

    Prospective participants must either (a) be serving in the role of software architect, or (b) be aspiring to move into such a role. All participants must have substantial experience of IT software and systems development and implementation in team and technical leading roles. They must also have current competence to interact with development teams at a deep technical (i.e. specification and coding) level.

    Applicants should have a primary degree (Level 8) in Computer Science or a cognate/science discipline or a degree with a high level of mathematics. Those who do not meet this requirement will be considered on their merits if they can show a particular interest or aptitude for this area of work or if they have industry experience and training which shows evidence that their education and work experience is sufficient to meet the education needs of the programme and recruitment policies of the College.

    Participants will become registered students of TU Dublin (Tallaght Campus) and be awarded free membership of IASA.

    MSc in DevOps application deadline


    Primarily online via TU Dublin (Tallaght Campus)

    With most technology organisations moving their delivery platforms to a DevOps approach the shortage of people with cross sectional skills in DevOps is now acute. Developed by industry as a direct response to this need this first-ever Master’s degree in DevOps aims to fill these important talent gaps and give credit, recognition and credibility to technologists working in this field.

    The advantages of Development Teams and Operations Teams collaborating to improve the delivery of technology solutions has meant a rapid adoption of DevOps approaches to the Software Development Lifecycle. Closely associated with Lean and Agile concepts in enhancing the delivery of technology solutions, the DevOps approach has impacted very rapidly on the Technology industry.

    Most existing DevOps ‘specialists’ grow or develop into their role with no formal standards or certification, and a modicum of training in the actual practice of cross functional DevOps practices. They may already be experienced, highly skilled, competent and high performers in their own field of software development, computing, IT management, or quality assurance but they can lack the knowledge and understanding of the other cross functional disciplines they now find themselves working with daily. Understanding not only the technical, but also the business and human factors at play during the high pressure demands of modern software delivery processes, is essential in the modern discipline of DevOps

    There are two phases to the award. Candidates are registered for the full Masters of Science in DevOps Level 9 degree (90 credits) however candidates may opt to exit the programme on successful completion of the first three semesters with 60 credits and receive a Level 9 Postgraduate Diploma in DevOps (60 credits). Please note exit awards are at the discretion of the college and no refund of fees will be due.

    The award structure will place greater emphasis on continuous assessment, practical and project work rather than on formal examinations. In fact there are only 2 modules that carry an actual exam.

    The aim is that participants will gain a deep understanding of the topics and content covered, and be able to demonstrate this acquired knowledge as proven competence in tests and exercises drawn from practical “real life” DevOps scenarios.

    The programme will start with a three-day workshop which will involve all participants being physically present. This is seen as important to facilitate networking, experience sharing and group learning.

    Lectures will be streamed live from TU Dublin (Tallaght Campus) i and will be available for download and offline viewing.

    Programme Outline:

    • Semester 1: Business Technology, Strategy, IT Infrastructure & Automation
    • Semester 2: Continuous Software Delivery, Human & Organisational Issues
    • Semester 3: Advanced IT Infrastructure for DevOps and DevOps in Practice
    • Semester 4: Research Methods, Research Project

    The minimum entry requirement for standard entrants to the course is a 2:2 (GPA 2.5 or equivalent), in a Bachelor of Science in Computing (Level 8) or a cognate discipline or equivalent. Candidates not attaining this standard level must achieve an acceptable standard for progression by other means approved by QQI.

    MSc in Leadership, Innovation & Technology


    Online with lectures at TU Dublin (Aungier Street Campus)


    This Level 9 masters degree has been developed by the TU Dublin (City Campus) in partnership with Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet. It is delivered part-time over two years mostly through live streamed lectures online with additional face-to-face and online workshops and tutorials.

    The programme is highly practice focused and concentrates on the personal and professional development of the participants by honing their analytical, conceptual and critical thinking skills; developing personal, consultancy and research competencies; and building a detailed understanding of the tools, methodologies and frameworks to support advanced management capability.

    The programme is aimed at existing employees in the ICT sector or employees working in ICT related roles in non-IT companies. (This includes owners and managers of small enterprises.) They are likely to be experienced and either in leadership roles or planning on moving into such positions.

    The programme is delivered in two-phases: The first phase includes a suite of six modules (detailed below) that address key development areas for leaders and entrepreneurial professionals in the ICT sector.

    The second phase involves working on an applied and structured project. By conducting research in the context of your organisation and specialist area, you build your personal expertise while contributing to important management issues in the organisation.

    The research involved will typically focus on research ‘in’ the organisation rather than ‘on’ the organisation. It is more likely to involve cross-disciplinary work, thus contributing to your own practice and development.

    Phase 1: Months 1-8
    The six modules in the first phase allows you to immerse yourself in current management thinking. The work-based assignments will further allow you to test potential ideas for the Applied Research Project to be completed in the second phase of the programme.

    Phase 2: Months 9-24
    The research project requirement will have a structured design with workshop based and webinar based training and sequenced outputs that build towards the delivery of a high quality research project with potential to deliver real impact.

    Programme Modules
    Phase 1 Modules
    Innovation Management and Creativity
    Problem Solving and Critical Thinking
    Personality and Leadership
    Strategy Tools for Competitive Positioning
    Strategic Management of Technology and Innovation
    Team Leadership and Change Management

    Phase 2 Research Project

    The research project will have a structured design with workshop and webinar based training and sequenced outputs that build towards the delivery of a high quality research project with potential to deliver real impact.

    In addition to the training each programme participant will be assigned a mentor to advise them through all stages of the research process.

    The assessment strategy for each of the six modules in Phase 1 will be exclusively linked to work-based project assignments and reflective learning submissions. There will be no examinations. The final award of the master’s degree will be linked to the assessment of the research project undertaken by the participant with the support of the college.

    Participants must have a Level 8 honours degree in a cognate discipline with a minimum of a 2:2. Candidates with significant work experience but without the requisite qualifications may be considered under a Recognition of Prior Learning process.

    This programme is only open to those working in private or commercial semi-state organisations in the Republic of Ireland.

    Should you be interested in applying, you can submit your CV to info@ictskillnet.ie with a note expressing your interest and we will keep your details on a waiting list and get in touch should a place become available.

    DP-100: Designing and Implementing a Data Science Solution on Azure


    New Horizons Ireland


    Gain the necessary knowledge about how to use Azure services to develop, train, and deploy, machine learning solutions. The course starts with an overview of Azure services that support data science. From there, it focuses on using Azure’s premier data science service, Azure Machine Learning service, to automate the data science pipeline. This course is focused on Azure and does not teach the student how to do data science. It is assumed students already know that.

    This role is responsible for solving the business problem that initiated the project. While the Data Engineer will prepare the data to be used for the models, the Data Scientist determines what data is needed for model training, creates model features from the data, determines what machine learning model to use, trains and evaluates the model, and often has involvement in model deployment. Often the data scientist needs to evaluate multiple models to determine which performs the best.

    MSc in Blockchain – Distributed Ledger Technologies


    Online via Dublin City University


    2-yeas part-time course. 

    Blockchain is a rapidly growing technology with the potential to disrupt traditional practices across a wide range of industries. The lack of technical Blockchain skills is of national and international concern as it is a significant inhibitor to Blockchain adoption in companies across key industries including manufacturing, supply-chain, health, food, finance and the public sector.

    With its roots in Bitcoin and crypto currencies, Blockchain technology provides a distributed non-repudiable ledger. It works on decentralised platforms and offers significant advantages for business operations in terms of transparency, elimination of third parties, cost reduction, micropayments, cryptographic security, and permanent transactions. Blockchain enhances the speed and transparency of transactions along complex supply chains while reducing costs. It optimises back and middle business processes and transactions, augmenting security, reporting and regulatory and compliance profiles.

    IDA Ireland’s Blockchain strategy aims to promote Ireland as a European location for Blockchain developments and in 2018, the Minister for Finance published a discussion paper examining the potential of virtual currencies and Blockchain technology. Working with Blockchain Ireland, the Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet has identified the skills gap for software developers with the requisite Blockchain knowledge and development skills and is co-funding this new MSc as a direct response to this need.
